Watermelon ‘has same effect as Viagra’

Watermelons

Watermelons are loaded with anti-oxidants which are good for the skinEating watermelon has a similar effect on the body to Viagra, according to researchers in the US. It’s down to a chemical called citrulline which is found in the juicy fruit. Citrulline is an organic compound which affects the body’s blood vessels in the same way as the sex enhancement pills. It helps relax the blood vessels which means blood gets around the body more easily. The research comes from the US’ Texas Fruit and Vegetable Improvement Centre. Dr Bhimu Patil led the research. He said: "We’ve always known that watermelon is good for you, but the list of its very important healthful benefits grows longer with each study. “Watermelon may not be as organ specific as Viagra… but it’s a great way to relax blood vessels without any drug side-effects.” It’s also claimed watermelons are good for your heart and immune system. The vast majority of watermelon (92%) is made up of water. But the remaining 8% is loaded with the anti-oxidant lycopene which is also good for your skin.

Top quality punnage sir :smiley:

So what does it do for women?

Exactly the same as it does for men?

Relaxes blood vessels - allowing blood to circulate easier - making “bits” more swollen thus more sensitive - bish bash bosh

Oh dear i should stop eating watermelon then :smiley: :stuck_out_tongue:

Thanks for clearing this up, last week i ate a whole watermelon in an afternoon and began to think i may have a strange fetish :hehe:

So if I eat a whole watermelon and then take a viagra I could be in trouble?

You’d probably be walking funny and adjusting your trousers a lot + sitting on a sportsbike would be very uncomfortable. . . :smiley:

I’d be worried for everyone else around you.

You cant exactly pop a watermellon in ya gob when you’ve pulled now can ya.

Old Arab adage: a woman for duty, a young boy for pleasure, a watermelon for ecstacy.
